This excercise was is a study of the effects of shade, tone and tint on a specific hex code found from our schools identity manual. For this piece, I wanted to utilize the imagery of a drop of paint to help format my typography. While the droplet is bottom-heavy, the type “Shade, Tone, Tint” are arranged in a very top-heavy manner in an attempt to create balance. Opacity is also used in order to achieve the value changes when the typography actually crosses over the blue hue. This allows the word to not only show the user the vocabulary, but also act as an example of how shade, tone and tint act against hues.
